There’s something about Texas – if I didn’t live here, I wouldn’t live here.
Juanita Jean sum’s up all of my frustrations with my native state and then some… She goes on to lay out why:
We have 248 kinds of snakes in Texas and 246 of them will kill you. We have hurricanes, tornadoes, drought, mad bulls, honky tonks where we mix guns, beer, and dancin’ with someone else’s wife, bad politicians, oil men who will steal the fillings out a child’s mouth, heat stroke, stinging jellyfish, fire ants, and blue northers.
We have mosquitoes that can carry off a small dog. And now we have mosquitoes determined to kill you. West Nile Virus is scampering all over Texas.
